We have been going there since we were kids. Its on the way to Hanging Gardens and Kamala Nehru Park. The view that you get of the whole Queens Necklace in the night is gorgeous. Years back there used to be Cafe Naaz where after a walk everyone stopped by for sandwiches. Now unfortunately its no longer there. You can... More

This is just a residential area where all mill owners used to stay. Now also it is one of the posh areas.you can overlook arabian sea, Chowpatty and nearby Hanging Gardens.

If you travel to Malabar Hills, one place you must definitely visit is Malabar Hills. You can get a bird's eye view of the Girgaum Chowpatty from there. The residents of Malabar hills are mostly high level politicians- like the CM and Home Minister of the State. Most of the people living there have ancestral property or are government employees...

Malabar Hill is where some of the richest and perhaps oldest families of Bombay reside. It is home to a motely mix of apartments and bungalows. There's also a park (Hanging Gardens), a water-reservoir (Banganga) and some heavy-duty shopping (Warden Rd, Peddar Rd) within a short drive. Apt if you have an evening to spare, particularly during the rains.

Quite something! Home to tycoons and and Bollywood stars alike. The 27 storey two billion-dollar (estimates vary) tower of German design which dominates the skyline is home to one business magnate, his close family, and a huge retinue of servants. Spectacular views on a clear day it must have - but it was shrouded in smog when we visited! There... More

Spent most of my early childhood in the area and now take my kids there. Beautiful view,good parks especially for walks and lots of food & drink from street vendors. Malabar hill club is ok though much better since it's been refurbished. Little Gibbs restaurant is good for Indian food & very reasonable.

We visited with a touring party. We were allowed to walk and after a detailed discussion, we took photos and enjoyed the visit. Should be part of your scheduled trip.
